    1. I am currently drafting the abstract of my thesis. The author’s advice has helped me structure my ideas and select the most important things.
    2. I think steps 2, 6 and 7 should always be performed.I
    3. think step 7 is the hardest for me. I have a hard time summarizing information, but I’m going to get over it little by little.

    1. I think the tips in the article are fine. They´re very useful for me and I´am going to consider them at the time I have to do it for my thesis.
    2. We need a methodology for everything in our lives, so I think point 1 is the most important. Some people, could think they´re gaining time if they do it the abstract before, but it´s a mistake. Also, I think it´s very useful to ask a colleague to review my abstract and check it. I´am convince that “four eyes” are better than “two”.
    3. I think step 1 is the hardest because we have a lot of information in our head and we have to organize it.

    1. If they are useful, why do they help me adjust the essential points of all my research work in a paragraph of only 200-300 words, which is not an easy task.
    2. I think everyone, because with these tips I can write a useful summary that correctly frames the research problem, summarizes its purpose, describes the study design, and effectively presents the main findings and trends.
    3. I think it is the following: 7. Remove all extra information (see step 6) and then link your sentences to ensure that the information flows well, preferably in the following order: purpose; basic study design, methodology and techniques used; major findings; summary of your interpretations, conclusions, and implications.

    1. The 10-step guide is good. In my opinion, the steps help write a good summary. In addition, they allow for a good Abstract structure using the correct keywords and sentences. Therefore, a good summary will be interesting for readers and researchers.

    2. In my opinion, step 5. This permits a good Abstract structure and should have the following sequence, introduction, methodology, results, and discussion. Elaborate on the Abstract in this sequence will help the coherence between the information in the summary and in the document.

    3. I think the most difficult part of developing an abstract is step 7. Because selecting the relevant information for the abstract is difficult when it seems that all the research information is very important. If you also do not have much experience in the investigation, it will be very difficult. But, with practice and following the 10 steps it will be easier.

    1. Do you think these tips are useful when writing your research?
    In my opinion, these tips are useful because they give a lot easy information about one research. When you start to write a research abstract is difficult to elaborate it in the first time, it is necessary to search and to have feedback, it helps you to complete and to have good results.

    2. Which ones do you think are the most helpful? Explain
    I believe that the most helpful advice is the number 9. “Ask a colleague to review your abstract and check if the purpose, aim, methods, and conclusions of the study are clearly stated”. I am currently writing my thesis degree and in some case it is annoying and frustrating, but it is necessary if you want good results.

    3. According to the Writer What do you think would be the most difficult part to elaborate in an Abstract? Why?
    According to the writer the most difficult part about one abstract is resume a lot of information in a few words, 200 a 300 words, which wants to attract readers that don’t have any idea about your research. I have the same idea.
